Committees: Research & Development

Dr. Dorothy Kammerer-Doak
The main duty of the IUGA Research and Development Committee is to review research applications and award grant funding for original research in the field of urogynecology. The Committee also develops and promotes research projects through its members and interested individuals.

Current Projects
Recently, an update for the Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence Questionnaire was validated in the English language as part of a multi-center project. This updated version, the PISQ-R (Revised), is currently undergoing translation-validation in multiple languages. Additionally, a manuscript from the committee regarding recommendations and standardization for the evaluation of pelvic organ prolapse will soon be published. We have also established a new subcommittee, a Basic Science and Biomechanical Research Interest Group to facilitate research through international collaboration in these areas.

Dorothy Kammerer-Doak MD wrote on the Committees: Research & Development wall: Dear Members of the Research & Development Committee-- There has been interest expressed in the development of an international database for surgical outcomes. We have started this process by contacting the IUGA affiliate societies to see if they have an interest in developing and participating in such a database. We are aware of the British and the Austrailian/New Zealand database. Please give me your feedback at my regular email: THX!
